EZ Sleep Test™ - Sleep Apnea Treatment
Snoring is a sleeping issue that millions of people are plagued with, making it difficult for their friends and family to sleep without being disturbed. Although it doesn’t seem like a big deal, snoring is actually putting the offender at serious risk for several health issues. Thankfully, Dr. Alvarez offers EZ Sleep Test™ Technology, where you can see if you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea.
Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when your tongue and the soft palate close the back of your throat, which stops the air from flowing through. This causes the sleeper to wake up again to start breathing once more, usually awakening with a start. This happens throughout the night, where the sleeper can stop breathing for 10 seconds to several minutes. In the morning, people who snore throughout the night feel restless, their body is exhausted and never feel like they’ve gotten a good night’s sleep.
Here are some facts about obstructive sleep apnea from the official EZ Sleep Test website:
